This got me thinking about how I’ve tried making my own peanut butter in the past. Super fun to make – I usually just use peanuts, a little peanut oil and a pinch of salt. I’ve added in cinnamon before too and its SO good!
This recipe is dairy free, gluten free, and vegan (if you use dairy free chocolate chips!)
If you don’t have any restrictions regular chocolate chips work just fine of course.
Ingredients you will need for these Chocolate and Peanut Butter Balls
Almond Flour: Almond flour is a great gluten free alternative. If you have almond meal that works well too.
Both almond flour and almond meal are made from ground almonds. Almond flour is typically made from blanched almonds which have had the skins removed, and is ground more finely than almond meal, which typically still contains the skins and has a more coarse grind.

Mix all ingredients (except chocolate) in a small bowl.
Roll mixture into balls. Use a cookie scoop for ease and a little flour on your hands if they are sticky or you can refrigerate the dough for 30 min. before rolling to make it easier as well but most of the time I use the cookie scoop or press into molds.
Freeze for 30 minutes, then roll the balls into melted chocolate and then freeze for another 30-60 minutes. Top with flaky sea salt is desired. Enjoy!
You can store these in the freezer and pull one out when ready for a treat!Sub honey for maple syrup if not vegan. OR for a no added sugar option use melted coconut oil.Can substitute a different nut butter if you don’t like peanut butter. Almond butter, cashew butter, and hazelnut butter are all great options. Always keep in mind the ingredient label, look for no added sugar nut butters. Melt chocolate using a double boiler or I most often use the microwave. Microwave in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, stir, and microwave again until smooth. You can add in 1-3 tsp. coconut oil to give the chocolate a smooth consistency.
